Me too Chieftain!!
Won't be long. Hope to find a few shrooms by mid April if the weather is right. But most likely they will be at their peak from the first week of May to mid May. I'll be out scouting around mid April though.
Fishing and green ginseng are at the top of my list too!!!
It was nice here in middle TN last Saturday... and I did a short wade on a small local river.
It had rained some and the river was up a foot or more... but I just had to get out there and try to catch a few.
Ended up with one Smallie and one Black Perch. Water is still quite cold (got over my chest waders once when I tripped over a log while in deeper water)... and I don't uaually have much luck when the river is up and running. Hard to fish slow like you need to in cold water when the current is ripping along.
It sure felt good to get out and do something outside.
I hate this late winter stuff... come on spring !
Morels, Turkeys, Smallmouth Bass, breaking up ground and starting on the garden... now that is more like it.
